The Horse Shoe (3) - Morland plaque, Bridge Street, Bampton, Oxon
This public house was for many years a Morland house. The Morland Brewery could trace its origins back to 1711. In 2000 the company and its assets were sold to the Greene King brewery in Suffolk. Greene King lost no time in closing the Morland brewery at Abingdon the same year. Production of Morland beers was then transferred to Suffolk.

The plaque, still in place to the right of the main entrance door, commemorated George Morland who was a noted artist and painter. He holds his palette in one hand and a pint of beer in the other.
